    I don't really have much to add. This is how it should be. Period.

        Majik. They do like to crow on the odd occasion they do the right thing. Think it makes up for the murdered homosexuals?

        Prolly not huh?

          I'm speaking as much to my fellow Christians as anyone.

            Yes - your religion is divisive - I know.  I know you think you are better than atheists and - this thread was supposed to demonstrate that. This would be why I have no respect for your irrational beliefs.

            But - please go ahead and post a thread next time a self professed Christian shoots a doctor for performing abortions. wink

      "Ms. Crye said, “I want no publicity for this; I was just doing as God asked me to do."

      No, that shouldn't be the way. We don't need gods telling us what to do as it only serves to diminish our evolved altruism and compassion.

    I saw a blurb about this on MSN Friday. It said the guy converted to Christianity because of the outpouring of love he received. It made me chuckle. I thought about how well received that thread would have been.

      So they falsified it by saying he converted? Thaaat's unhelpful. Doesn't really have anything to do with the point either.

        I don't know if it was falsified. I didn't investigate it. But it said he said he finally understood what Christianity was all about, due to the way people showed their love to him. Maybe they lied. Got me.

        But hey, you're right. People coming together is probably counter productive. It's better if we all agree to politely disagree. smile

    There are many wonderful people out there whom help their neighbors, travel to different countries to help the poor there, work in soup kitchens etc. I can guarantee not all of them are Christians. . . I think it's funny how Christians only notice the good deeds of other Christians instead of everyone. Why do people have to be labeled "Christians" just because they're doing the right thing? God didn't strike that girl with lightening and tell her to help that man she did it because she has a heart and a conscience. God didn't tell her to do squat. Personally I think christianity is a cult..they try to get others to join and force their religion down others throats. Do you really honestly think that by posting this article you're going to convert people? Won't happen. Id the girl didn't want any special credit why is she talking to the paper and telling them that? Seems to me like she's just trying to look modest. I think it's very nice what she did for that man and his wife, but her being Christian shouldn't have anything to do with it. Just blows my mind. How can you be ok with going against your Bible and God almost on a daily basis, but if you repent for your sins and confess God will forgive you? Really? It's called karma. Regardless if you believe God forgave you the universe hasn't forgotten and you will get your karma. That's how life works. I asked a Christian one time well you can't see God you can't see Jesus so how do you know he's really there? They can never give me an answer for anything besides you just have to believe. Well that doesn't work fig me. It all comes from within ourselves that's it plain and simple. If I was gods puppet I would be attached to a popsicle stick and some string. Get a grip people let's just love everyone and stop with this religion stuff seriously.

    non christians must be sympathetic towards christians...in end christians are innocent people who got stuck in some 2k yr old book...non christians must assist christians to come out of their illusion and get real...

    Lawdy, lawdy. That is about as self-serving as it gets.
    True Christians wouldn't be seeking publicity for doing God's work.
    They would just quietly do it.
    And get their reward in heaven -- not the media.

    P.S. I love how they characterize a man protesting a nativity scene on public grounds as a Christian hater.
    Maybe he isn't even a godless atheist.
    Maybe he, like many Americans (including -- gasp, some churchgoing Christians) just believes in the separation of church and state.
